The fate of two families cross paths on the African continent in Ethiopia, at a goat market where child-traders and western adopters gather. A Danish couple are to adopt 4 year-old Masha, and her 2 year-old brother, Roba, from their Ethiopian parents. Each family has their own motive for choosing adoption. Each family has a different idea of what adoption is. This is the best documentary film on international adoption I’ve ever seen.
In this international feature documentary film, complex human suffering in both families is examined where adoption creates an industry focused on supplying the childless West. As children become a commodity on the market of family dreams this film challenges a global child and compassion industry operating in the shadow of desperation and need.The film will be followed by an exclusive Q & A with the director Katrine W. Kjær and journalist and curator Hannah Pool.
